CLARiiON calls for networked storage
1 April 2005 | 0
EMC’s CLARiiON CX400 networked storage system is the second member of the CLARiiON CX family, following on from the recent launch of the CX600.
The CLARiiON CX400 delivers 680Mbyte/s of cached bandwidth, which EMC claims gives it a price/bandwidth ratio 20 per cent better than its closest competitor.
The CX400 shares a common architecture, components, FLARE operating environment and software (eg Navisphere, SnapView, MirrorView and Access Logix), with the CX600, and maintains tight management integration with prior CLARiiON generations.
The extensive software suite available across both of EMC’s storage array product families — CLARiiON and Symmetrix — includes members of the EMC Controlcentre family of management software such as Automated Resource Manager, Database Tuner, Replication Manager, SAN Manager, StorageScope, Workload Analyzer and other products like PowerPath and EMC Data Manager.
EMC has also enhanced its SnapView nondisruptive point-in-time copy software. SnapView Business Continuance Volumes (BCVs) provide a local full-image copy of a data volume, increasing protection and application sharing in highly active environments. Customers can now use BCVs — a fully independent volume — to perform multiple simultaneous processes such as backups, data warehouse refreshes and testing.
